Published 14th Sep 2017

1.   Another Place, Lake District

Try making this on your list of autumn holidays. This is nothing like the average Lake District hotel. 2017 has been a great year for the Lake District. UNESCO awarded it World Heritage status in July – joining the likes of the Grand Canyon and Taj Mahal. Truly special with 18 acres of lakeside landscape, breath-taking views, 40 stylish bedrooms (including brilliant family suites) and lots of contemporary features. The grand features include a beautiful swimming pool with floor to ceiling glass windows, showcasing a spectacular view of the surroundings. Guests can hike, swim, paddle board and sail, too.

2.   Lugano, Switzerland

The beautiful city of Lugano is situated in the south region of Switzerland, bordering Italy and being underneath the shadow of beautiful mountains just south of the Alps. This is one of the most picturesque destinations any time of the year, but visiting in autumn means enjoying the setting if magnificent colours. If you visit during the first weekend of October, you have the chance to attend the Autumn Festival. This Festival features folkloric music as well as celebrations of grapes and fine wines.

 3.   The Cotswolds, England

Arguably one of the most visual aesthetic pleasing areas in the UK, the rolling hills, tranquil woodland, and picture-perfect villages of the Cotswolds make the perfect autumn break. Walkers should follow the Cotswolds Way walking trail up to Painswick Beacon for breath-taking views. There are many lovely pubs and luxury hotels to explore. We recommend to go for more than a week as there is so much to do.

 4.   Costa Brava, Spain

If you’re missing the sun and fancy hot autumn holidays, then this place is perfect for you. The Costa Brava boasts some of the country’s most picturesque and super-sized beaches. It is located on Barcelona’s doorstep and is a very family-friendly destination. The temperatures in autumn are around 19C – 24C.

5.   Skye Window House, Scotland

You can enjoy the beautifully remote Isle of Skye from this Scandi-style house. It has floor-to-ceiling windows with knock-out views of Mount Bay. Be mesmerised by the sunset without leaving your chair and the warmth of the fire.

6.   County Wicklow, ireland

I can really understand why this place is dubbed as the Garden of Ireland, a perfect place for a relaxing retreat and a great place to spend your autumn holidays. Walk the lush green hills, visit picture-postcode scenery, villages, or gaze lovingly at the sprawling Great Sugar Loaf mountain. Check into the Ritz-Carlton Powerscourt – one of the best hotels in Ireland.

7.   Oktoberfest, Germany

What a way to spend your autumn holidays at Oktoberfest, the world largest folk festival with a substantial amount of beer and German food. The 16 day festival is truly massive and enormous fun.

8.   Bridge of Orchy, Scotland

Deep in the Scottish Highlands, the Bridge of Orchy is a village set among especially incredible scenery. If you stay at the Inveroran Hotel, you will be in the heart of Scotland and the best Scotland has to offer, from tower mountains to whisky distilleries and castles. The West Highland Way is popular for walkers and perfect for a beautiful autumn day.

9.   Bath, England

For fans of the city break, beautiful Bath is the perfect place for a romantic autumn getaway, with plenty of historic sights and luxury hotels. Renowned for its Roman Baths, Bath has many attractions such as tea at the famous Pump Rooms and walks around Bath Abby.
